The Liaison Team are an integral part of the fleet while they ae in Lerwick and they work closely with the ships - even before their arrival in port. Individual Liaison Officers are appointed to each ship to act as their local point of contact and ensure the captain and crew have access to information, advice and services required.
Liaison Officers are required to attend a morning briefing at around 08:00 each day of the event then report to their assgned ship to pass on messages and updates for the day. During the day, Liaison Officers will assist crew with bookings for tours and activities, and direct them to the correct location for their designated transport.
Volunteers who are friendly, confident, interested in developing international friendships, and have a good sense of local knowledge are particularly well suited to this role.
Liaison Officers are Ambassadors for the port, and Shetland, as they represent our community aboard the ships.
Liaison Officers will need to be available on siter from Wednesday 26th - Saturday 29th July 2023, with an 08:00 start each day.
